Calcium Citrate that tastes like dessert — Wow! Our Calcium Citrate Chewy Bites deliver 250 mg of elemental calcium as calcium citrate in a delicious chew. They also contain 125 IU of vitamin D3 for healthy absorption. These chews are sugar-free as well, so you don’t have to worry about getting extra carbs while you get the calcium you need. Each chew is individually wrapped so you can take them with you wherever you go.
When I was down in Savannah a few weeks ago, I won a prize sponsored by Bariatric Advantage. Part of that prize basket was a bag of their new Raspberry Calcium Bites. In my excitement, several of us ripped open the bag and did a quick taste test right there at our table.
General consensus was very favorable. I didn’t write it all down, because I just didn’t. (Like I need an excuse to be lazy?) Hindsight, yadda yadda.
These? Taste wonderful. They have a consistency of LaffyTaffy, and taste like they came from Willy Wonka as well. No, I’m not exaggerating, either. Seriously good. And not in a bad way, either. These were hard to keep from taking more than my dose at a time. It was a “is it time for my calcium” sorta thing. Some of the other calcium chews are a bit gritty towards the end — not these. They are smooth all the way to the end, and I love how they did that. Don’t even seem related at all.

Now, to get your 1500mg of calcium a day, that means 6 of these suckers. It’s not really a hardship, IMHO, but they are not as cheap as pills (of course). If you’re doing 2000mg, then you’re doing 10.
All-in-all, an excellent-tasting choice for calcium if you haven’t moved onto pills.
